  • Dr De Lestrange's research interest focuses on understanding the interaction between the brain and refractive errors development, and developing ophthalmic solutions for neuroptical image enhancement.


Dr Elie de LESTRANGE-ANGINIEUR received his master’s degree in Optics, Matter and Plasma from the University of Paris in 2007. He obtained his PhD degree in 2013 from the Applied Optics group, National University of Ireland, NUIG Galway for his work on the visual effects of higher-order aberrations in the human eye, using the adaptive optics technique. He later joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering, Peking University to work on the imaging of small animal eyes. Based on visual psychophysics, modeling, and optical instrumentation, Dr de LESTRANGE-ANGINIEUR’s current research interest focuses on the relation between retinal blurs and neural processing.
